Jabs: A Sore Point To Both Man and Beast!

'DOGS are being crippled and even killed by the annual veterinary jabs intended to protect them from disease'; such was the result of a study taken several years ago.

The Canine Health Census, which conducted the survey of 2.700 dogs, claimed the animals were up to 13 times more likely to succumb to a range of illnesses and diseases if they had been given annual vaccinations. In some cases the reactions were so severe that they died, or had to be put down. .

The main vaccines were against diseases such as hepatitis, leptospirosis, distemper and parvoris. But the side effects ranged from vomiting and diarrhea to serious illnesses such as epilepsy, arthritis and brain damage, claimed the report.

Of dogs that had become sick, 55 per cent had done so within three months of being vaccinated, 41.75 per cent within 30 days, and 24.56 per cent within a week. The results were published in a book entitled: 'Who Killed The Darling Buds Of May?' and subtitled: What Vets Don't Tell You About Vaccines.

A Catherine O'Driscoll, who set up the Canine Health Census after her dogs died of illnesses believed they were vaccine related and said: "Vets and vaccine manufacturers advise us to vaccinate our pets year after year, and they insist that reverse reactions occur in only a ‘tiny minority’ of dogs . But we found they were much more common than that: - about one in a hundred animals had some kind of reaction."

A Hilda Reynolds, of Hawkshurst. Kent, said she'd nursed her miniature dachshunds for 13 months after they'd had a traumatic reaction to vaccines to prevent parvovirus, distemper and leptospirosis. Her pet, Jamie, 3, had to be put down because he was in so much pain while Hannah, 7, was crippled. .

Simon Orr president of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association said: Such vaccines have been rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness and have dramatically reduced the outbreaks of diseases?"

Well I'm not qualified to discuss the above article of seven years ago which appeared in a Sunday Telegraph. But I would not dismiss the matter any lighter than I would the recent controversial 5 in 1 jab for children or, indeed, me MMR jab! Rightly or wrongly I feel the whole liaison between the pharmaceutical and government approved medications be they for man or beast, is open to grave suspicion. Amazing, and more alarming still, when the only medications New Labour appears to clamp down on are humanely produced herbal ones! Indeed, if the populace cannot see through all this encroachment of our civil liberties then they must be blind indeed. At the present moment, the drive towards mass medication via our drinking water is being pursued with approval from the average MP who – in the opinion of many - sees little further than his/her pay-packet
